recording of Shepherd of the Hills, by Harold Bell Wright. Read by Emily Jarmard.
The story depicts the lives of mountain people living in the Ozarks and the mystery surrounding an old man called 'The Shepherd of the Hills,' who's called Dad Howitt. The backdrop storyline surrounds the pretty Samantha Lane, called Sammy, and her love of Young Matt, Grant Matthews. The shepherd, an elderly, mysterious, learned man, escapes the buzzing restlessness of the city to live in the backwoods neighborhood of Mutton Hollow in the Ozark hills. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Shepherd of the Hills
A beautiful recording. Emily's voice is so sweet, soft, and well paced. To tell the truth, the reading is better than the material -- which is pretty good in itself. I'll be looking for more of her work.
